Shooting at Amsterdam’s central station

A shooting attack took place at Amsterdam's central station on late Tuesday, causing police to set off in hot pursuit after a suspect car.

Local reports indicate that a suspect has been apprehended, although details about the incident such as whether there were any casualties and if it was a terrorist attack or not remain unclear.

The incident in the capital of the Netherlands comes just hours after Brussels was attacked by Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists on Tuesday morning, in bombings targeting the city's airport and metro system in which 34 people were murdered and nearly 200 were wounded.

Belgian security forces continue to hunt a third terrorist suspected of taking part in the twin bombings at the airport. Apparently his explosive failed to detonate, and he remains at large.

He was caught on security cameras with the other two suicide bombers, and then was filmed running from the site after the explosions.

Police likewise are checking whether a terrorist who took part in the bombing of the Maalbeek metro station fled the scene.
